My best advice would be to join and jeep club and hit trails with them, because there aren't any legal places to wheel in Hampton roads.

George Washington Nat'l Forest is the hot ticket in VA.

Like mentioned above, get with a local club and they will clue you in. ANYTHING that is not in the forest and marked as a legal trail is illegal in VA. No power lines, no gas lines, none of it. There ARE private property trails, but you need permission in writing to access them or membership in an affiliated organization.

Or you could got to Crozet, Va and wheel up there. My club goes up there a good amount and everyone always has a good time. Or make friends with someone who owns private property somewhere and will let you wheel on it.

This is where being a member of the club helps. You can't just show up at Crozet and bash your brains out on bodyshop because you feel like it.

Actually that is kind of incorrect....

The only membership that i have (other then UFWDA and VA4WDA) it out at RCPFA (Crozet) and that is not really considered a "club". It is a membership to access private land and go wheeling.

If you are not a member of RCPFA you can either join us for an "open" run, they have them like 4-6 times a year now and see what it is like or, post up on thier website that you are not a member and are looking to come out and ride and join. The rule is that you need to have at least 2 rigs at all times.

There is even an open run the 10-11th of Dec supporting "toys for tots."

If you decide to join for the year its a whopping $25 and you get access to the members only runs and cookouts and stuff. Wheeling fees are $25 for a day or $40 for the weekend for members (like +$5 for non members). They even have their own camping area. Considering the price of gas, the mileage savings insted of driving down to other sites is worth the membership or fee.

If you post up looking for a 2nd rig and member to run with you should have no problem finding someone to partner up with given enough notice. I knew no one a few months ago but have 10-15 current members contacts that i can post up to on "very short notice" and wheel with.

I joined in september and went out 3 times since with people who were just looking to have someone show them around. It is really a great place to wheel and you can get around it and have fun with "normal" modifications.

check out thier website at http://www.rcpfa.com/

in the immortal words of "Viper"...if you cant find a wingman give me a call....I'll wheel with ya...

Agreed! Crozret is a great place to go.

Mike, not sure if you remember me but we wheeled together at shoe creek and I drove the steel blue TJ. Well I sold that and have been on the hunt for another TJ and as soon as I buy one I would love to get up with you and hit Crozet on day. Gonna check one out tomorrow and hopefully bring her home.

Join us at HRJC.org! There's a local spot off Northhampton Blvd that we go to every now and then. I'll be glad to take you sometime. Plus, every now and then in Suffolk, Starr motors is open every now and then, they have 2 nice rock courses and a bunch of mud.

Starr Motors (Jeep dealership) in Suffolk has some events there with some pretty sweet trails for built and not-built jeeps. They have rockcrawling and everything. Real neat place however it isn't always open.

Just saw where someone mentioned Starr Motor's already....didn't read the entire thread.
